Welcome to Bethany!

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.(John 13:34-35)

Bethany Christian Church is a Disciples of Christ Church.

At Bethany, worship services are a time for joyful praise and Christian renewal through the sharing of God’s word. The Lord’s Supper is the central element of our worship together. We celebrate communion every Sunday and invite all who believe in Jesus to take part.  Regardless of your denomination, you are welcome here.

The Chancel Choir, Handbell Choir, occasional soloists, contemporary music and liturgical dance, as well as youth participation, enhance our services. Some services feature a children’s sermon or Youth Choir performance. There is an Extended Session after communion for preschool and early elementary children to provide activities geared to their ages and needs.

At this time, our services are held online.  Please contact the church if you are interested in joining one of our online worship services.
